I am 19 years old, no kids, but I always read the blog. I just finished reading Little Bee and it is a fantastic read but it is very dark. Make no doubt about it I was extremely sad and depressed as the story moved on. I'm not sure if I'd want my kids to read this book unless I felt that they would be mature enough to understand.
